London is always the perfect place to be to celebrate New Year’s – could you honestly name a city in the UK that would mark it in such an extravagant way? No, neither can we, hence you need to book a London hotel as soon as possible to avoid any problems.
Of course, the fireworks over the Thames are a visual treat, as the clock strikes midnight and the sky is transformed into a technicolour explosion of bangs and vibrant hues. Do note that this year will be the first in which you have to pay to see the display, but trust us when we say it’s certainly worth it.
After the crowds disperse, be sure to check out the many trendy bars and clubs that London boasts, many of which will be hosting special New Year parties sure to be going on until the wee hours of the morning.
If you can bear the hangover the morning after, be sure to attend the New Year’s Day Parade. This annual event has been going on for the past 29 years, and it is a great way to kickstart 2015. Featuring over 10,000 performers from London boroughs and across the world, the parade will see dancers, musicians, acrobats and cheerleaders get together in the city centre for some proper British pomp and ceremony. For more details on timings and places, be sure to check out the official website.
Whatever you choose to do in the capital for New Year’s, remember that transportation such as the tube and buses will be running on limited hours so plan accordingly. Either way, this will be not only a great way to welcome in 2015 but a night that you are sure to never forget.
